Photos of Via Rail's sole remaining
mainland Budd RDC service, titled "The Lake Superior" which runs between
Sudbury ON (just north of Lake Huron) and White River ON (just north-east
of the northern shores of Lake Superior). Sudbury ON is one of the largest
towns in Northern Ontario and a centre for nickel mining. White River ON
is a small town notable as a waypoint on the Trans-Canada highway, as the
coldest place in north America, and as the hometown of Winnie The Pooh (who
was real, black and female!).
These images are stills from camcorder recordings taken on the evening of
Wednesday 21st May 2003 as the units were being prepared to leave the
station at Sudbury ON to return to the depot at Sudbury Junction for
overnight servicing. RDC-4 #6250 is believed to be the last remaining
operational member of it's class, and still operating on the Canadian
Pacific mainline at that. Here is it is paired with RDC-2 #6205. Second
RDC-2 is also assigned to this service.
